Lens benefits

Included with every pair at no additional cost

All of our eyeglasses come outfitted with the good stuff

  • Scratch-resistant treatment

    A treatment that does just what it sounds like. (And if scratches appear, we’ll replace your prescription lenses for free within six months of purchase.)

  • Anti-reflective coating

    We apply a coating that does double duty: It eases eye strain by reducing reflections and eliminates glare from your lenses.

  • Superhydrophobic coating

    “Hydrophobic” describes something that does not like water. Our lenses are superhydrophobic which means they repel moisture to help prevent smudging. (Because smudges are the worst.)

  • UV protection

    Our lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. (Protect those peepers.)

Prescription types

We’ve got options to meet a variety of vision needs


These lenses correct one field of vision—near, intermediate, or distance. This option is what most people choose, and it’s included in the price of our frames, starting at $95.


Our digital free-form progressives lenses provide seamless near and distance correction, and everything in between, so you don’t have to switch between multiple pairs. Plus, there’s no line like bifocals and trifocals have. (If there’s an “ADD” value on your prescription, progressives are for you.) Ours start at $295 (i.e., way below the standard cost of progressives).


An anti-fatigue lens includes a single-vision prescription and a boost at the bottom. This lens design may reduce eye strain from spending time in front of screens and looking at items up close for long periods of time.


These lenses offer simple magnification (up to +2.75) for, well, reading—no prescription necessary. Reading lenses are included in the price of our frames.


Get all the style and protection of our optical lenses, minus the vision correction. Non-prescription lenses come with our frames at no added cost.

Lens types

Add blue-light-filtering or light-responsive qualities


Our most popular lens type is packed with all of our key benefits—scratch-resistant, anti-reflective, and superhydrophobic treatments, plus UV protection—and is included in the price of our eyeglasses.


Fan favorite

Blue light is a subset of light emitted by the sun, as well as by computer, phone, and other electronic screens. These lenses filter a higher percentage of blue light than our classic option and cost an additional $50.


Color options available

These lenses transition from fully clear to a darker tint (choose from grey, brown, or green) when exposed to UV rays, preventing eye strain and reducing glare. They also protect your eyes from 100% of UVA and UVB rays and filter more blue light from the sun and screens than our classic lenses. This option costs an additional $100.

Lens materials

Polycarbonate and high-index choices for a range of prescriptions


Our most popular option, these lightweight, impact-resistant lenses come standard for all optical orders and are included in the price of our eyeglasses.

1.67 high-index

Recommended for anyone with a strong prescription (+/-4.0 or higher total power), 1.67 high-index lenses are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses. These cost an additional $50.

1.74 high-index

These lenses, recommended for those with especially strong prescriptions (-8.0 or higher total power), are up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses. These cost an additional $150. (Unsure if these lenses are for you? No sweat. We’ll review your order first and reach out if we think they’d make a good fit.)
